Label finishing solutions provider Rotocontrol and Domino have partnered to offer label printers and converters expanded capabilities and value-added differentiation in hybrid label printing and finishing.

The new inline hybrid solution featuring the Rotocontrol DT-340 digital label finishing machine with an integrated Domino N610i label press will be featured in Rotocontrol’s new headquarters and demo center in Siek, Germany with an opening planned for this June. Rotocontrol in Green Bay, USA will also feature this complete inkjet hybrid finishing press in June at the opening of its new demo center.

Features of the N610i in the combined hybrid solution are up to seven colors including opaque white, 600dpi native print resolution, and operating speeds accelerating to 70m/min (230ft/min) combining the productivity of flexo printing with the flexibility offered by rapid job change digital technology. Compliance for food packaging is also offered with the new Domino UV95 ink set.

The Rotocontrol DT-340 provides multiple die-cutting and printing stations, lamination, cold foiling, hot stamping, label inspection, small roll programmable auto turret winding and 100% servo control from Bosch Rexroth.

“This powerful hybrid configuration takes business to the next level allowing label printers to expand capabilities, make more money, do more for current customers, and gain new customers as well,” said Jürgen Pflieger, marketing manager for Domino Germany. “With virtually unlimited printing and converting options, printers can produce complex labels on a wide range of materials and substrates for maximum flexibility and future-proofed production capabilities.”

We are pleased to partner with Domino in this next-generation hybrid machine,” said Marco Aengenvoort, Rotocontrol managing director. “This advanced hybrid label printing and finishing system will be the main anchor in our new demo center, to showcase its many features and possibilities in live demonstrations. We look forward to opening our new headquarters in June and begin welcoming label printers to Siek.”

Rotocontrol and Domino will also host an open house at Rotocontrol’s new headquarters in Siek to present the new DT-340/N610i hybrid label printing and finishing system. The official date will be announced soon.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
